    It may be faster than Titan but it's also bigger, uglier and much, much louder. And of course being a dual-GPU card, this will always be subject to the vagaries of multi-GPU driver support.

    Not saying that the scores are definitely correct, but there's much more to a graphics card than just how many frames it spits out in a few benchmarks.

    since a card is shut away inside a case , and pumps out fps in games

    what else is there ? power use? if your worried about that after spending £800 , you shouldnt be spending £800 on a gfx card then.....

    The titan is a single gpu card that performs well and quiet/cool. Thats why it scores well. This is two gpu's on one pcb. Not exactly a new thing....

    This kind of Radeon HD 7990 is only produced by companies working with TUL, as far as we can tell. Therefore you have PowerColor, VTX3D, Club3D, etc.

    A 'problem' for this card, especially with respect to scoring, is that, in the UK, it's difficult to find it in-stock at an approved retailer. This is important as it gives the purchaser access to the very latest AMD bundle. Other HD 7990s, which are basically the same as this card, are available for £100 less and will give you the latest games.

    It's also not clocked in at PowerColor-matching speeds, for example, so if you really want to go down the HD 7990 route, for ultimate performance, there are better/cheaper options available. It can, as the review states, get annoyingly loud when gaming, though this seems endemic to the HD 7990s.

    Personally, for what it's worth, I would have a TITAN or GTX 690 over this, but then I like quieter cards that have more all-round appeal.

    Re: Reviews - Club3D Radeon HD 7990 6GB

    Is it possible you can use longer than 30 second test sequences? There is evidence that the Nvidia Turbo Mk2 might be inflating scores,by boosting highly for the first 1 minute:

    Edit!!

    AFAIK,even AMD will be revising their boost mechanism for GPUs(starting with Richland AFAIK),so perhaps longer test sequences will stop any benchmark inflation by short term clockspeed boosts??

    CAT-THE-FIFTH,

    There's no reason why we can't extend it to a minute, or more, but we do try and get around this funny-boosting problem by letting the GPU render the scene - it has the same load as running around - for at least a minute before starting the FRAPS run.

    Thanks,Tarinder. Its nice to know Hexus has had a look at it too. A minute or two would be also cool,if you have the benchmarking time!!

    I think it looks ok. However it's noisy and a dual-gpu which renders it useless in my opinion. Not saying I'd buy Titan either...to be frank all of these cards are for people with a lot more money than sense.

    Now that's a beast. I like how it performs. So the ideal solution would be to buy 2 and watercool them and watch them go. Hey guys, can we have a sweepstakes for this card? I'd like to win one!

    I was wondering, to help me put into perspective the power, if you could run a test on minecraft.
